Durham UNCF Steering Committee "Evening with the Stars Gala"
On February 16, 2018, our Durham UNCF Steering Committee, chaired by Dr. Gladys Burnette, held the “Evening with the Stars Gala” at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill. The gala was a huge success and our students will benefit from the scholarship funds raised during the event. Mayor Pro Tem Cora Cole-McFadden and former Shaw President, Dr. John H. Lucas,Sr., were the honorees.

Thank you to our donors and the Durham UNCF Steering Committee for a job well done! Your long time support continues to make a huge difference.

Dr. Fred Long Medical Symposium and Luncheon
On March 23, 2018, the annual Dr. Fred J. Long Medical Symposium and Luncheon was held. Dr. Long was a 1968 alumnus, and the programs continue to educate and commemorate his commitment to Shaw, his profession, and his community. This year the lecture featured medical panelists discussing mental health issues which focused on the theme “Our Thoughts Influence Our Behavior – What Are You Thinking?”

Thank you to our Chair, Dr. Carolyn Love, the donors, the Dr. Fred Long Committee, and Yvonne Yancy and The Fresh Market for the beautiful Orchid center pieces. Your continued support is greatly appreciated!
